    I met Annie at the thrift shop, and got to know her when we rode the bus together. She was such a
    sweet lady, I loved her dearly. I just saw her a couple weeks ago when we rode the bus together, it's
    hard to believe she is gone. I used to love helping her find what she wanted at the thrift, and listen to
    her stories when we were on the bus. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.
